A Thought About Gossip

A Thought About Gossip
Here’s a great thought about gossip, called “Who Am I?“.

I am more deadly than the screaming shell of the cannon.

I win without killing.

I tear down homes, break hearts, and wreck lives.

I travel on the wings of the wind.

No innocence is strong enough to intimidate me, no purity pure enough to daunt me.

I have no regard for truth, no respect for justice, no mercy for the defenseless.

My victims are as numerous as the sands of the sea and often as innocent.

I never forget and seldom forgive.

My name is Gossip.

  1. I live in a small town in Cornwall, UK. This speaks volumes to me. I’ve even printed it out to post up in the local pub!

  2. We must give up our rights away from gossips.Everybody gossips,part of human nature.Its a leveler.Everybody has a share of mistakes,humiliations.weakness.We must give up our rights for always have a good reputation.We are not perfect.We must be willing to understand each other.We are all complementary,we need each other.Nobody is an island.

  3. This is so good. So many times we pray for God to save us, to heal our body, to give us strength to do different things etc. but we fell to stop and ask God to do the most important thing “To Save Our Tongue” this is the most dangerous weapon there is. We walk around with a saved body with a dead tongue!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Be bless my readers.

  4. The truth rings out loud in this poem. We all have a tendency to gossip to some degree. These words are a good lesson to us all. Love this poem. Thanks for the eye opener Shawn. Time to make a conscious effort not to gossip as it tends to slip off the tounge easily with us all. I’m going to try to think before I speak after reading this. It’s a good post for the wall to remind me of this truth.

  5. If he who speaks an unkind word in gossip against another could feel for himself the pain, the anger, the humiliation and hopelessness that resulted, perhaps gossip would then begin to subside. But that is the nature of gossip, it is entered into in exactly the kind of way that offers the perpetrator a good measure of insolation and protection from having to feel the real and all too often devastating outcome of his actions.

  6. When tempted to talk about others who are not there to defend themselves, think positive. Speak positively with a goal to uplift and an honest intent to put that person in a positive light, so that when they learn of what you said, you can be grateful that you said it.
